Schneider National settles for $28 million class-action suit

Posted on October 28, 2016 10:31 am under Overtime Law and Minimum Wage Violations

A class-action lawsuit has been filed by California truck drivers against Schneider National Carriers Inc., claiming that the company did not pay them their full wages.

This is the second time that the company has been forced to settle with their workers that were allegedly underpaid and denied benefits—both times, the company has refused to admit to committing any of the allegations and settled merely to take care of the litigation.

Most of the accusations hinged on the part of the driver’s pay that was not based on an hourly system. Among the complaints were that drivers were not paid for the hours spent waiting for customers; other non-driving duties including truck inspection, fueling, and required paperwork each day; all the miles they covered. Additionally, they were not given adequate time for meals and rest days as required by California law.

If you believe that your employer has not given you proper wages, you may be entitled to file a claim for money that you are owed. To know more about the legal process, contact one of our attorneys with Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at (414) 271-0900.
